Rescue efforts were hampered by the Esplanade beach access sinkhole.
Remember this: No matter how crazy that "other" driver behaves on the road, do NOT react, speak, gesture, take any kind of defensive action, or even have eye contact with the aggressor. Law enforcement advises avoiding conflict altogether. If you can, pull over safely and let the aggressor go by. You may have to swallow your pride, anger, and sense of injustice, but it is not worth getting into a fight or worse. Let it go!

Coastal trails and parks are open again after a week of repairs for storm damage. The only remaining closure we know of is the Esplanade access trail down to the Manor/Mussel Rock beaches. Scroll down to see our January 2 post with photos of the Esplanade sinkhole and repair job underway (though there may not be enough cement in the world to seal that gap in the cliff).
